Finsbury Park: Number of casualties as ‘van hits worshippers’ outside mosque in north London

19 Jun

Eyewitnesses reported seeing bystanders wrestle the suspect to the ground and pin him down until officers arrived. 

One eyewitness speaking to LBC said the van had hit people on the pavement, but had not collided with a building. “It looked like he had lost control of the van or something,” he said. 

Pictures posted on social media show more than a dozen emergency vehicles near the UKCG Help Centre at the junction of Seven Sisters Road and the A503 Tollington Road.

Cynthia Vanzella said on Twitter: “Horrible to watch police officers doing cardiac massage at people on the floor, desperately trying to save them. I just hope they did.”
